About the Instructors Akaash Saini and Amir Hashemi

Akaash Saini

Prior to joing Wilbur Curtis as their Northern California Rep, Akaash learned about the inner workings of the coffee industry during his time at Equator Coffees, Visions Espresso, and Morsel, an award-winning biscuit and coffee shop in Seattle, WA. To help grow the specialty coffee industry, Akaash volunteers his time as a National Brewers Cup Judge, a Sprudge Editorial Board Member, and a board member of the Bay Area Coffee Community. Talk to Akaash about his love for wine, Bollywood movies, and basketball.

Amir Hashemi

Everyone knows Amir…and everyone has learned something from Amir. Why? Because he is the best trainer in the industry. This man knows it all – from electrical and plumbing, to water filtration, troubleshooting, installation and more. Whether this is your first day with Curtis equipment or your 25th year, Amir will teach you something that you didn’t know before. Got a question? Ask Amir, then pour yourself a big cup of coffee, sit back and get the answers and education needed to level up.
